In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro K6000 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition .

The Quadro K6000 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed and 176 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the Quadro K6000 providing 169.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Quadro K6000 has a 170 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 560 Ti. This results in the Quadro K6000 providing 12.7 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Quadro K6000 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 560 Ti, and so the Quadro K6000 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 560 Ti.

The Quadro K6000 has 11008 MB more video memory than the GTX 560 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Quadro K6000 also has superior memory performance overall.

The Quadro K6000 has 166.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 560 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro K6000 is massively better than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Quadro K6000 has 2880 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro K6000 is 2598 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656. The Quadro K6000 having 1942 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro K6000 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Quadro K6000 transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 560 Ti. This means that the Quadro K6000 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 560 Ti.

The Quadro K6000 requires 225 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Quadro K6000 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti. The Quadro K6000 requires 15 Watts more than the GTX 560 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro K6000 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 560 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewQuadro K6000 is a high-end professional card based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.

It's based on the Kepler GK110 GPU and thus offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 902MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 1502MHz. It has a L2 Cache of 1536KB and a rated board TDP of 225 Watts.

Despite exhibiting similarities to GeForce GTX 780 Ti, due to being under-clocked and because Quadro K6000's drivers are only certified for professional applications only, its gaming performance is similar to GeForce GTX 780.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
